Stage 3 Rosacea Without Other Stages?


I have had these enlarged oil gland bumps on my nose for over a year now. Up until very recently, no derms have ever told me anything about rosacea. Finally, one doctor said I probably have stage 3 rosacea and he prescribed me ampicillin for it. It describes my condition well....bumps appearing on my nose that seem to be enlarged oil glands.

Because 6 previous derms failed to ever tell me this, I am wondering if this could in fact be rosacea. I've never had any of the other symptoms if rosacea (at least, I don't think I have). The only times I ever get red anywhere on my face are the common factors: alcohol, super hot shower, etc...). It has never been itchy or bothered me nor have I ever even noticed it outside of these common factors. Could my nose have developed stage 3 rosacea without stage 1 or stage 2 rosacea?
